Clippers' Reggie Bullock, C.J. Wilcox injured, will miss summer league

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers says team is taking 'conservative' approach toward Reggie Bullock, C.J. Wilcox
Former Clippers forward Danny Granger has agreed to a two-year contract with the Miami Heat

The Clippers announced Monday that injuries will prevent wing players Reggie Bullock and C.J. Wilcox  from playing on their summer league team in Las Vegas.

Also, The Times confirmed reports that unrestricted free-agent forward Danny Granger agreed to a two-year, $4.2-million contract with the Miami Heat on Monday, leaving the Clippers.

The Clippers said Bullock, who played in 43 games during his rookie season, will be out while rehabilitating right quad soreness he had been dealing with during the 2013-14 season.

The Clippers said Wilcox, a 6-foot-5 guard who was selected in the first round of the NBA draft at No. 28, won’t play because of a right shoulder injury.

Doc Rivers, the Clippers’ coach and president of basketball operations, said Bullock and Wilcox are being held out of the summer league for precautionary reasons.

“We want to take a conservative approach in their rehab process and make sure they are fully healthy and ready to go for the start of training camp,” Rivers said in a statement released by the Clippers.
